Not loosing ANYTHING on met...

Postby LATINA30 » Tue Jul 28, 2009 7:23 pm

I have been on met since the end of march, I take 1500mg slow release at night with my evening meal, I have been sticking to a low fat healthy diet and trying to mix as much low gi food as possible but I have not lost any weight or much inchage, I am really fed up about it, is anyone else having the same issues?

Hi LAtina,

I#m having similar problems... The first month I took it I lost almost a stone but have since put it all back on again... I'm following the low GI/GL diet too - but I am not exercising and I think this is the problem. It's one thing to take it and start improving your metabolism I guess... But it's taken 3 years to put this extra 3 stone on, so I guess it's going to take longer than 3 months to lose it.. :(

I've just got a Cross Trainer at home, I'm going to use this tonight!

Are you doing any exercise?

Not losing weight on metformin

I've been on Meformin for 8 years and it certainly hasn't helped me to lose weight despite following a healthy diet!

Metformin has stabilised my blood sugar levels but that's about the only benefit I can be sure of..... :)

metformin isnt meant to make you lose weight, some people do lose weight others put it on and other stay the same, the only gurantee to weight loss is healthy eating and plenty of exercise, when its done properly it does work. Im not making it up either my boyfriend was with me when the doctor told me this when he put me on metformin, i have back up to prove this :)

i ve had the feeling sick too but as i say its not the met that makes you lose the weight its the healthy eating that makes you lose the weight, the met reduces the insulin resistance that makes you put on weight more easily :)
